Common Eye Conditions

Care for Common Eye Conditions in Chula Vista

If ocular diseases and issues go untreated, they may lead to significant eye damage. Use the following information to determine when you should come in to the Chula Vista, CA offices of Dr. Robert L. Evans, O.D. and Dr. Marilyn A. Carter, O.D. for common eye conditions.

Infections and Pink Eye

Eye Issues
Eye infections may be the result of minor injuries, foreign substances in the eye, or inappropriate care of contact lenses. If the signs of trouble are ignored, an infection may lead to severe damage:
  • Discomfort
  • Feeling of something in the eye
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Discharge from the eye
  • Teary eyes
  • Redness
  • Fever
  • Blurred vision
  • Sore on the iris
Anyone can get pink eye (conjunctivitis), but it is most common in children. As soon as you suspect the condition, visit a doctor because the infection spreads from one person to another quickly. Symptoms may include:
  • Eye discomfort  
  • Swelling
  • Redness of the eye and the eyelid
  • Discharge from the eyes
  • Sensitivity to bright light

Common Eye Disorders

Other eye diseases and problems can be more difficult to treat. These include:
  • Glaucoma: too much fluid pressure inside the eye
  • Macular Degeneration: damage to the macula from yellow deposits under the macula or abnormal, leaking blood vessels
  • Blepharitis: “dandruff of the eyelids”
  • Presbyopia: reduction in the elasticity of the lens
  • Diabetes related eye problems

What to Do If Something Is in Your Eye

Your first impulse may be to rub your eye, but this could cause corneal abrasions and further damage. You might try blinking rapidly or irrigating the eye, or come in to the offices of Dr. Evans and Dr. Carter to have the object removed. We serve the communities of Chula Vista, El Cajon, and La Mesa.
